Catholic Charities, the University of San Francisco, and Most Holy Redeemer are the most outspoken advocates of the homosexual agenda in the Archdiocese. According to "New Ways Ministry," there are others. New Ways Ministry has a list of what they call "Gay Friendly Parishes." You can see it here.

In the Archdiocese of San Francisco section we find:

St, Charles - San Carlos:
Most Holy Redeemer - San Francisco
Old St. Mary's Cathedral - San Francisco
St. Agnes - San Francisco
St. Dominic - San Francisco
Mission San Rafael - San Rafael

Most Holy Redeemer is of course in a class by itself, and has its own section.

Old St. Mary's Church (go here) has an interesting idea of Ecumenism. (PDF 1.77MB)

St Agnes Church:

The former pastor of St. Agnes was Fr. Cameron Ayers, SJ. Here he is leading his flock at the 2005 "Gay Pride Parade":


Fr. Ayers is currently the Chairman of the Archbishop’s Stewardship Council,
and is a member of the Council of Priests for the Archdiocese of San Francisco.

• St. Agnes also hosted the March 26, 2006 "Alienated Catholics: Establishing the Groundwork for Dialog" sponsored by the "LBGTQ Caucus" of, where else, USF. The "Alienated Catholics..." link has PDF's of the various speakers, but to get the full flavor of the seminar, one should go to the "Quamdiu Domine?" website, which has audio/ and video of the speakers.

On June 23, 2008, Fr. Cameron Ayers, SJ, donated $100 to the "No on Proposition 8" campaign.

On May 10, 2009, the parish bulletin of St. Agnes includes announces that Fr. Ayers is taking a leave of absence from the Jesuits:

"Dear Friends, It must have been quite a shock to many of you when Father Cameron announced his intention to take a leave of absence from the Jesuits so that he could discern his own personal vocation...."

Ayers finally left the Church and since 2011 has served as a an Episcopalina priest.

The current pastor is Fr. Raymond Allender, SJ.

On June 26, 2011, Fr. Allender closes his pastor's message in the weekly parish bulletin with the words:

"Finally, on Gay Pride Day let me say how proud we are of our gay brothers and lesbian sisters who bring so much to our parish bytheir participation."
